Ms. Porto’s Weekly Newsletter
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! This week we introduced the letter A! We also continued to work on our literacy unit Peter and the Wolf. The children really like this story!
We started off the week on Monday with a St. Patrick’s Day sheet! The children had to follow the color words and fill in the rainbow! They all did great! Then we went to Spanish where we learned about the different parts of our day! We also acted out what we do during those certain parts of the day! When we returned, we made an acorn! We all got in our own special spots and worked our fine motor skills!
Tuesday we worked on recognizing upper and lower case A’s by coloring in apples. The children also had to identify color words. Then we went to P.E. where we stretched out and then did backward rolls! This was hard but we are working on it! When we returned, we worked on matching acorns and nuts. Everyone did an excellent job!
Wednesday we worked on coloring in an apple. This helped us to recognize upper and lower case A’s. Then we went to Art where we worked on making a Dr. Seuss fish. This will take us a while to finish and I can’t wait to see them! When we returned from Art, we worked on recognizing beginning sounds. This is a hard concept and we are working hard on it!. Last but certainly not least we had a math lesson where we worked on patterns by playing hopscotch! What a fun way to learn!
Thursday we started off the day with our Spanish special where we colored in what we do in the morning. Then we had some recess time! Boy was it cold but we had fun! Then we went to Music where we sang and even got to use Mr. G’s lollipop mallet! Mr. G taught us that different mallets make different sounds! When we returned from Music we worked on apple patterns! We sure are getting great at patterns! After lunch we had our apple tasting! We tasted red delicious, granny smith, gala, and fuji apples! We found out that our class likes the fuji apples the best!
We finished off the week on Friday with an A cutout sheet. the children had to identify pictures starting with the letter A. They all did great! Then we worked on putting an alligator together. Once we were finished putting our alligators together we had a mystery reader! Thank you so much to Joey’s mom for coming in to read to us! We love our mystery readers! Last but certainly not least we turned an uppercase A into an airplane!! What fun!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
